You will also see here multiflorous roses, old varieties repeating the flowering, so-called renovators (for example the 'Frau Karl Druschki' from 1901 year), miniature roses and English roses, combining the features of old garden roses and modern varieties.

In the corners of the rose, at the supports, climbing varieties were planted, selected according to the difficult climatic conditions. Among them isRosa helenae'Semiplena', each year sprinkled with light cream, tiny flowers.

The place in the Rózanki collection was also a group of roses bred at the end of the twentieth century by David Austin, called English roses.
